Perform a pre-usage check for patch or patch.exe in the path.
Review Request #919 — Created July 15, 2009 and submitted
|Review Board SVN (deprecated)|
Perform a pre-usage check for patch or patch.exe in the path. This change introduces a pre-usage check (much like our media directory and database upgrade checks) that verifies that either patch or patch.exe (depending on platform) is in the Apache user's path. If not in the path, some helpful instructions are provided for downloading and installing it.
Faked the different platforms and forced the check to "patch2". Saw the instructions. In reality, this error will probably always come up on Windows, rather than other platforms.
